M-346 Advanced Jet Trainer Inaugurated into 150 SQN
(5 photos)

The newly inaugurated M-346 Advanced Jet Trainer is more than just a trainer aircraft. Our pilots at 150 SQN, home to our Advanced Jet Training programme at Cazaux Air Base in France, explained what makes the M-346 special -

“With the advanced avionics systems in the aircraft, we are now able to teach additional skills to trainees such as air-to-air radar mechanics, Beyond Visual Range missile deployment, air-to-ground radar mapping and datalink operations. These features were not available in the previous trainer aircraft”, said MAJ Dennis Lin, a Qualified Flying Instructor, on how the M-346 aircraft adds new dimensions in the training and development of future pilots.

LTC Kelvin Wan, Commanding Officer of 150 SQN, believes that the M-346 also completes the flying training process in the RSAF.

“The inauguration of the M-346 marks the final step in the 3rd Generation RSAF flying training transformation journey. With its state-of-the-art technology and advanced training features, pilot trainees can now pick up advanced combat skills at an earlier stage. I am proud and honoured to lead my team into taking flying training to greater heights.”

Yesterday Defence Minister, Dr Ng Eng Hen, inaugurated the M-346 Advanced Jet Trainers into 150 SQN based at Cazaux Air Base, France. Chief of Air Force, MG Hoo Cher Mou, and Commander Air Force Training Command, COL Benedict Ang, also graced the ceremony.

U.S. eyes deal with S.Korea on F-16 upgrades by year-end -sources



(Reuters) - The U.S. government hopes to hammer out an agreement with South Korea by the end of the year for the U.S. unit of Britain's BAE Systems Plc to carry out $1 billion-plus of upgrades to more than 130 F-16 fighter jets, sources familiar with the discussions said this week.

The U.S. Air Force has been leading talks with Seoul about the second phase of a contract won by BAE in 2012, when it beat out F-16 maker Lockheed Martin Corp to upgrade 134 of South Korea's fighter jets for $1.3 billion.

BAE, the first non-original equipment maker to win such an F-16 upgrade order, is already developing the design for the upgrades under a $140 million contract that includes new radars, mission avionics, higher resolution screens and new weapons.

But the two sides are trying to finalize the pricing and schedule of the second phase of the contract, given some changes requested by South Korea that have increased the cost, said the sources, who were not authorized to speak publicly about the discussions.

"The question now for BAE, the U.S. government and the South Korean government is, can we fulfill the requirements the South Koreans are asking for at the price they're asking for," said one of the sources.

The source said South Korea had budgeted money for the project this year, and the goal was to conclude the current negotiations before the end of the year.

"It's a normal part of any FMS program," said the second source, when asked about the discussions. "The basic scope of the contract isn't changing. I wouldn't expect to see a significant increase in the price."

Air Force spokeswoman Ann Stefanek said the U.S. government routinely communicates with other countries about weapons systems upgrades and procurements, but declined to address any specific communications between the Air Force and South Korea.

BAE said it was assisting as needed in the talks between the U.S. Air Force and South Korea. "Phase One of the program began earlier this year and is proceeding on schedule, and we look forward to soon beginning Phase Two," said spokesman Neil Franz.

BAE said in its half-yearly report for 2014 that it expected to wrap up the second part of the contract before year end.

BAE, Lockheed and other companies are jockeying for position in the $10 billion estimated market for F-16 upgrades keen to offset declining orders for new jets.

Singapore and Greece are also weighing F-16 upgrade orders.

Singapore has decided to stick with F-16 maker Lockheed to do the upgrades, an additional source familiar with the matter said, although no formal announcement has been made.

Heidi Grant, deputy undersecretary of the Air Force for international affairs, traveled to Singapore last month for its National Day holiday.

Singapore and Indian Air Forces Hone Operational Skills in Joint Military Training





The Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) and the Indian Air Force (IAF) are conducting a Joint Military Training (JMT) at Kalaikunda Air Force Station (AFS KKD), India from 14 October to 20 November 2014. Minister of State for Defence Dr Mohamad Maliki Bin Osman visited JMT today as part of his trip to attend the India Global Forum held on 9 and 10 November 2014 in New Delhi, India. At the air base, Dr Maliki was hosted to lunch by Air Commodore Rakesh Sinha, Air Officer Commanding, 5 Wing, AFS KKD.

The RSAF deployed F-16D Block 52+ fighter aircraft to train with the IAF's MiG-21 and MiG-29 fighter aircraft in this year's JMT. JMT is conducted under the Bilateral Agreement between both air forces. The Bilateral Agreement, which was signed in 2007 and renewed in July 2012, provides for the conduct of joint military training and exercises in India. Over the years, JMT has grown in scale and complexity. It now involves advanced air assets from both countries and includes high-end training missions such as Dissimilar Air Combat Training and Mission-Oriented Training.

Highlighting the significance of JMT, the RSAF Detachment Commander, Lieutenant Colonel (LTC) Stanley Selva said, "We value the opportunity to train alongside our counterparts from India regularly in this Joint Military Training. It allows us to be exposed to a range of aircraft platforms, and enables us to strengthen the close and long-standing relationship between the RSAF and the IAF."

The RSAF's participation in the JMT underscores the warm defence relations Singapore shares with India. Aside from training together, the two air forces also interact regularly through the exchange of visits, cross-attendance of courses and other professional exchange programmes.

US Program Chief: Singapore Nearing F-35 Buy

VICTORIA, Australia — Singapore is moving closer to ordering the Lockheed Martin F-35 joint strike fighter, according to program head US Lt. Gen. Chris Bogdan.

Bogdan also noted increased activity from potential foreign military sales (FMS) customers for the F-35, including Israel, which recently committed to a further 14 aircraft.

"On the FMS sales front we're getting an increase in customer interest in the airplane," he said here at the Australian International Airshow at the Avalon Airport.

"We have a number of other [potential] foreign military sales customers that are asking us to start a greater dialogue with them in terms of the airplane, including Singapore."

Bogdan said that the joint program office (JPO) has been exchanging information with the Republic of Singapore Air Force for a number of years to support their decision making within their timeline.

"Over the past year, the discussions we have had have deepened [and] their request for information has gotten broader, so that would indicate to us that Singapore has begun to take the next step toward making a decision," he said.

The government of Singapore had not indicated which F-35 variant it was interested in and had requested information on all three: the conventional takeoff, the short-takeoff vertical-landing, and the carrier model.

Bogdan hosted a media roundtable on the opening day of Avalon 2015 with Australia's F-35 program head, Air Vice Marshal Chris Deeble. Deeble said the project to acquire 72 conventional F-35s for the Royal Australian Air Force was on track to deliver an initial operating capability by the end of 2020.

However, Deeble identified several areas that were causing him concern, noting that the Australian project office carries out an independent analysis of the technical problems.

"Understanding what capability we will get at the end of the development phase is really important," he said.

"What does worry me is sustainment and training and support to the aircraft. The autonomic logistics global system is still evolving. It is behind, it is late and we have to do more work to accelerate that and understand what that means in a national context."

Type 218SG of the Republic of Singapore Navy

25 Mei 2015



IMDEX Asia 2015, TKMS revealed technical data of new type conventional submarine of the
Singapore Navy. Both units will be completed in 2025. They will replace in-service nearly 50
years ex-Swedish Challenger-class submarines (photo: Michael Jarocki)


At this year's IMDEX Asia exhibition, TKMS Germany provided some technical details of new conventional submarines Type 218SG. As we know, based on a request from the Navy in 2013, Singapore has taken the decision to buy at least two units of submarines from the German shipyard Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft. The German manufacturer beat other bidders include the Swedish Kockums shipyard.

New Singapore Navy submarines built in HDW shipyard in Kiel, northern Germany. At IMDEX Asia announced that Type 218SG will have a length of 70 meters and a width of 6.3 meters. Displacement at the surface will be 2,000 tons, a total of 28 officers and sailors needed. Estimated speed and range are still unknown. The unit will be designed to carry heavy torpedoes and fired cruise missiles. Torpedo tubes will also be used for landing troops and deep sea submersible vehicles for special forces.



Type 218SG will have eight 533-mm torpedo tubes, equipped with AIP and used X-shaped tail rudder. The contract value is
estimated exceed 1 billion euros (photo : Coffee and Bullets)


The main tasks will include patrolling submarines in waters controlled by Singapore and protect the economic exclusive zone. The units can also be used for the observation and analysis of the marine environment, detection and removal of sea mines, conduct reconnaissance and support activities carried out by the army in the coastal region.

The first Type 218SG submarine will be completed in 2020. To enter service two years later, after passing through the sea acceptance tests and final test, as well as the completion of the training program for the crew. Both units should be in line 2025.

New submarines will complete two Singapore Navy fleet in service : two Archer-class submarines (1,400 tonnes surfaced) the former Swedish Västergötland class submarines which nearly 30 years old, RSS Archer (ex-HMS Halsingland) and RSS Swordsman (ex-HMS Vastergotland).

Singapore unveils Renault Trucks Defense Higuard MRAP armoured vehicles


During a military parade rehearsal held on June 28, Singapore unveils new 6x6 armoured vehicles. The Army of Singapore studied a project for replacement of its old V200 4x4 armoured vehicle personnel carrier with the new Protected Response Vehicle (PRV). It seems Singapore has opted for the Renault Trucks Defense (RTD) Higuard solutions.



The security threats the Republic of Singapore is facing is constantly evolving - which is why the Singapore Armed Forces must constantly "remake itself" to ensure it is able to nullify the evolving threats the Republic could face, said Defence Minister Dr Ng Eng Hen.

"The SAF will further leverage new technologies to respond to security challenges both externally and internally. New units for cyber defence are being raised. Better capabilities using infocomm technology, robotics and artificial intelligence are in the pipe-line for testing and integration into existing systems." added Dr Ng Eng Hen.

The V-200 is a 4x4 armoured vehicle which was designed and manufactured by the American Company Cadillac Gage based on the V-100 Commando. First batch of V-200 vehicles were delivered to Singapore in July 1970.

The V-200 was sold only to Singapore and is no longer being produced. Versions of the V-200 used by Singapore include: anti-aircraft, with the Swedish SAAB Bofors Dynamics RBS 70 surface-to-air missile system; recovery, fitted with an A-frame at the front of the hull; fire support, fitted with a two-man turret armed with a 90mm MECAR gun with 7.62mm coaxial and 7.62mm anti-aircraft machine guns; and APC, fitted with a two-man turret armed with a 20mm Oerlikon Contraves cannon, 7.62mm coaxial and 7.62mm anti-aircraft machine guns.

Renault Trucks Defense’s HIGUARD (MRAP) combines the excellent off-road mobility of the Sherpa Medium 6x6 tactical vehicle with the very high level of protection of its specially armoured cab (ballistic, mine and IED protection).

The HIGUARD (MRAP) is ideally suited for tactical missions such as troop transport in asymmetric combat areas. Its large volume and payload accommodates up to 12 soldiers with their equipments. The HIGUARD (MRAP) is also fitted for a roof mounted weapon system. Singapore Higuard seems to be fitted with a 7.62mm remote controle weapon system. Some might be equipped with 12.7mm heavy machine guns or with 40mm grenade launchers.

Singapore launches first Independence-class Littoral Mission Vessel

Ridzwan Rahmat, Singapore - IHS Jane's Navy International
02 July 2015


Singapore launches LMV Independence, the first replacement for Fearless-class patrol vessels
The ship will prove out new concepts for the RSN, including an integrated bridge and combat centre
Singapore has launched the first of eight Littoral Mission Vessels (LMVs) on order for the Republic of Singapore Navy (RSN).

The vessel, Independence , was launched on 3 July at ST Marine's shipyard in Benoi in a ceremony presided over by Singapore's defence minister Ng Eng Hen.

Singapore's Ministry of Defence (MINDEF) signed a contract for the LMVs in January 2013, with the ships replacing the RSN's 11 Fearless-class patrol boats (which have been in service since the mid-1990s). The LMV has been jointly designed by Saab Kockums AB and ST Marine, and is being built in Singapore by ST Marine. Singapore's Defence Science and Technology Agency (DSTA) is the overall manager and systems integrator for the programme.

The Independence class is fitted with one Oto Melara 76 mm main gun, two Oto Melara Hitrole 12.7 mm remote-controlled weapon stations (one each on the port and starboard sides), and a stern-facing Rafael 25 mm Typhoon gun system. Protection against hostile aircraft and missiles is provided by MBDA's VL Mica anti-air missile system deployed via a 12-cell vertical launching system (VLS) in the forward section.

The platform's non-lethal options are provided by two water cannon and two remote-controlled long-range acoustic device (LRAD) system turrets with integrated xenon lights.

The sensor suite includes the Thales NS100 3D surveillance radar, Kelvin Hughes' SharpEye navigation radar, and an electro-optical director and 360° surveillance system supplied by Stelop (a business unit of ST Electronics). In response to a question from IHS Jane's , the RSN confirmed that the LMV does not have an anti-submarine warfare (ASW) capability.

The 1,250-tonne ship has a length of 80 m, a beam of 12 m, and a draught of 3 m. It has a top speed in excess of 27 kt and a range of 3,500 n miles on an endurance of 14 days.


The LMV can embark a medium-lift helicopter on its flight deck. It also features a launch-and-recovery system (provided by Norwegian Deck Machinery) that can accommodate at the stern two rigid hull inflatable boats (RHIBs) or the Protector unmanned surface vessel (USV). The LMV has a baseline crew complement of 23, including five officers.

A concept that is being proven out in the RSN for the first time is the LMV's integrated command centre, which co-locates the ship's bridge, combat information centre (CIC), and machinery control spaces.

"The integrated command centre integrates and synergises the management of navigation, engineering, and combat functions to achieve greater operational effectiveness and efficiency, especially during maritime security operations", said MINDEF. This approach mirrors that adopted on the US Navy's Independence-class Littoral Combat Ship (LCS).

Also fitted is a remote monitoring system that allows for real-time reporting of serviceability data. "The ship's platform and combat systems' health status can also be transmitted back to shore for centralised monitoring and prognosis of the systems to detect anomalies and plan for pre-emptive maintenance," said MINDEF.

To maximise versatility, the LMV has been configured to deploy a range of containerised mission packages such as a medical module to support humanitarian assistance and disaster relief (HADR) operations. The platform can also deploy unmanned systems for surveillance and mine countermeasures (MCM) operations.

Following the launch, Independence will undergo a combat system installation period, and will then start sea trials. The vessel is scheduled for delivery in 2016 and is expected to be fully operational by 2017. All eight LMVs are expected to achieve full operational capability by 2020.

COMMENT
Concepts such as the integrated command centre exemplify the RSN's service-wide effort to reduce manpower requirements. In an interview in the Singapore Armed Forces' publication Pioneer in May 2015, chief of navy Rear Admiral Lai Chung Han highlighted the republic's dwindling birth-rate as a challenge facing the service.

Other recent efforts to ease the manpower burden include the deployment on board RSN vessels of unmanned systems, such as the Scan Eagle unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and the REMUS autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV).

The LMV's lack of organic ASW capability, in contrast to its sonar-equipped predecessors, suggests that the RSN is now relying on its Formidable-class frigates as the service's main submarine prosecutors. It could also be an indication that the RSN may employ helicopter-based submarine prosecution capabilities for the LMVs.

First NS100 radar completes factory acceptance

Richard Scott, London - IHS Jane's Navy International
31 August 2015

The first NS100 E/F-band dual-axis multibeam surveillance radar for Singapore's Littoral Mission Vessel (LMV) programme has completed Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) at Thales Nederland's Hengelo facility in the east of the Netherlands.

NS100 marries an electronically stabilised, mechanically rotating antenna with an active electronically scanned array able to generate beams simultaneously in elevation and azimuth. The system draws on technology previously proven in Thales Nederland's SMART-S Mk 2 and the SMILE/Sea Master 400 E/F-band radars, and shares the same generic SR3D platform architecture.

ST Kinetics unveils next-generation Terrex 2 amphibious armoured vehicle

Kelvin Wong, Singapore - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
09 September 2015



Singapore Technologies (ST) Kinetics, the land systems arm of government-linked defence prime ST Engineering, has taken the wraps off its latest indigenous 8x8 wheeled armoured vehicle development in an exclusive briefing with IHS Jane's .

Designated the Terrex 2, the new vehicle leverages the company's experience with the Terrex infantry carrier vehicle (ICV) - which has found domestic success with the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) - as well as the ongoing US Marine Corps Amphibious Combat Vehicle Phase 1 Increment 1 (ACV 1.1) programme that the company is pursuing in partnership with the Virginia-based Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC).

ST Kinetics chief marketing officer Winston Toh told IHS Jane's that the Terrex 2 represents the company's intent to increase its international presence, incorporating a larger, newly designed hull that focuses on troop survivability, increased payload capacity, as well as a high level of amphibious swimming capability.

"Our latest design is the culmination of decades of vehicle design that has seen the successful development of protected mobility platforms such as the [tracked] Bionix infantry fighting vehicle and the [wheeled] Terrex infantry carrier vehicle," said Toh. "As a result of this experience, we understand that we are not designing just a single platform, but one that can operate as part of a larger, networked force."

According to technical specifications supplied to IHS Jane's , the Terrex 2 has a 30-tonne gross vehicle weight compared to the current 24-tonne Terrex, offering increased payload capacity for weapons, armour, and expendables. The vehicle accommodates two crewmembers - the driver and commander - as well as 12 fully equipped troops in specially designed blast-attenuating seats that can be detached for quick access to hull storage spaces or to facilitate maintenance.

According to ST Kinetics, crew survivability is further enhanced with a proprietary hull design that it calls "V-over-V" (VoV), comprising two V-shaped hull sections: a lower section that is given over to the drivetrain and suspension systems; and an upper section that contains the protected crew and troop compartments. The lower section is designed absorb the initial blast from a mine or improvised explosive device (IED), with the second V-shaped hull further reducing the likelihood of troop casualties.

ST Kinetics also highlighted that amphibious operations are one of the key design drivers of the Terrex 2 programme, with the vehicle's final hull form determined through extensive testing in simulations, tank testing, as well as actual sea trials. The company asserted that its hydrodynamic hull design, combined with a raised snorkel system and a refined propulsion system, has enabled the vehicle to achieve swimming speeds of up to 6 kt in water conditions as high as Sea State 4 in actual sea trials.

The new vehicle is about 8.5 m in length and 3-4 m wide in its standard and amphibious configuration respectively, and is under 3 m in height with a ground clearance of 400 mm. Powered by an uprated six-cylinder Caterpillar C9 turbocharged diesel engine that generates 600 hp (447 kW) coupled to a reinforced Allison 4500SP six-speed, wide-ratio automatic transmission, the Terrex 2 is capable of accelerating from 0-50 km/h in less than 15 seconds and attaining a maximum speed in excess of 90 km/h.

The Terrex 2 is also equipped with the same suite of driving and situational awareness aids that feature on the current vehicle, including a camera array comprising 11 low-lux daylight and thermal imaging (TI) cameras mounted around its hull that supports closed hatch driving manoeuvres and an omnidirectional surveillance system. However, ST Kinetics has developed a new hybrid imager - called the TI fusion camera - that combines the capabilities of the daylight and thermal imaging camera to present thermal signatures that are visible even on daylight colour feeds.

In terms of armaments, current options include a roof-mounted remote weapon station armed with a 12.7 mm heavy machinegun or a co-axial 7.62 mm machine gun and 40 mm automatic grenade launcher with airbursting capability, as well as a larger remote turret with a 30 mm automatic cannon. IHS Jane's understands that other weapon systems such as anti-tank guided missile launchers as well as crew-served turrets can be mounted depending on customer requirements.

"The Terrex 2 will not replace the current vehicle, which is still in production, but will instead complement it on our vehicle portfolio," Toh said. "So we are now able to offer a wider range of platforms to address specific customer requirements."

Besides the USMC's ACV 1.1 programme IHS Jane's understands that ST Kinetics has teamed up with Elbit Systems of Australia to participate in the Australian Department of Defence's (DoD's) Project Land 400 Phase 2 acquisition programme, which is seeking up to 225 new-built combat reconnaissance vehicles to replace the army's ageing ASLAV light armoured vehicles and M113AS4 armoured personnel carriers from 2020 to 2025. While the company declined to comment directly on its participation in the Australian requirement due to contractual obligations, it is likely that the Elbit Systems-ST Kinetics entry will be based on the Terrex 2 platform.

The new vehicle is expected to make its public debut at the Defence and Security Equipment International exhibition in London from 15-18 September, as well as the Modern Day Marine exposition at Marine Corps Base, Quantico, later in the month.

Singapore Unveils Venus 16 Unmanned Surface Vehicle


Nov 3, 2015

operations, including force protection and mine countermeasure missions (photo : Jane’s)


The existence of a new and never before seen unmanned surface vehicle (USV) currently undergoing sea trials with the Republic of Singapore Navy (RSN) was revealed on the service’s Facebook page on 1 November.

Specifications of the indigenously developed Venus 16 USV were not disclosed, although IHS Jane’s Unmanned Maritime Vehicles indicates that the vehicle has an overall length of 16.5 m and width of 5 m, displacing 26 tons at full load. Powered by a waterjet propulsion system, the vehicle is thought to be capable of attaining a maximum speed of in excess of 35 kt.

Details of the prototype USV’s payload were likewise kept under wraps, but IHS Jane’s understands that this vehicle has been configured for mine countermeasure (MCM) missions. A launch and recovery cradle with what appears to be a towed side-scan sonar system can be seen on its payload bay under cover.

“Our navy will be integrating more and more unmanned technology as part of the navy of the future,” the service stated in its announcement. “The Venus 16 unmanned surface vessel (USV) is one of the unmanned systems currently being tested to support our maritime security operations.”

“The Venus 16 USV can be configured into various roles such as the conduct of patrols as part of our navy’s layered coastal defence, or to support mine countermeasure [operations] in conducting underwater scans of the seabed, while significantly improving manpower efficiency and reducing the exposure to risk for our sailors,” it added.

The vehicle is the latest model in the Venus family of modular and scalable USV platforms developed by Singapore Technologies (ST) Electronics, a subsidiary of state-affiliated defence prime ST Engineering.

Besides the 16.5 m platform, the company has also developed the Venus 9 (9.5 m) and Venus 11 (11.5 m) variants. ST Engineering had earlier stated that the USVs can be integrated with the Oto Melara remote weapon station for the force protection role, a Thales dipping sonar for anti-submarine warfare (ASW) persecution, a Thales Towed Synthetic Aperture Sonar (T-SAS) for MCM, and ECA’s K-ster expendable mine disposal system (EMDS) for mine identification and neutralisation missions.

Singapore showcases full-spectrum maritime security capabilities during Exercise 'Highcrest' 2015

Kelvin Wong, Singapore - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
06 November 2015



Singapore's ability to detect and respond to complex maritime security threats has been put to the test during a major inter-agency drill that was conducted from 2 to 6 November.

Exercise 'Highcrest' 2015 involved 900 personnel from 15 government agencies and is aimed at validating the ability of the Singapore Maritime Crisis Centre (SMCC), which was established in 2011 as a whole-of-government initiative to provide timely detection and responses to maritime security threats within Singapore's waters, as well as developments further afield that could indirectly impact its immediate environment.

"In light of the uncertain global security [environment], it is vital for Singapore to have a robust whole of government approach to maritime security," said Rear Admiral Frederick Chew, commander of the RSN's Maritime Security Task Force (MSTF).

"The [SMCC] has been working hard with the other national maritime security agencies over the past few years to enhance inter-agency collaboration and also to strengthen linkages at the operational level," Rear Adm Chew added.

During a sea demonstration on 5 November, maritime assets from the country's customs, homeland security, military agencies, and civilian port authority were called to intervene in a series of simulated threats occurring simultaneously in the Singapore Straits.

The initial evolution saw the Republic of Singapore Navy (RSN) deploy the coastal patrol variant of its experimental Venus 16 unmanned surface vehicle (USV) in concert with the Police Coast Guard's (PCG's) new Second Generation PK Class interceptors to halt a small boat attack.

While the small boat intervention unfolded, a 'hijacked' merchant vessel was also heading towards Singapore. The navy's Fearless-class patrol vessel and the PCG's new 19 m patrol interdiction boat (PIB) and 35 m Coastal Patrol Craft were dispatched to intercept the commandeered ship, while Special Operations Task Force operatives stormed the ship via a rigid hull inflatable boat (RHIB) and Super Puma helicopter insertion to subdue the hijackers.
